2016 WALT La Brisa Pinot Noir 1.5L
Pinot Noir - Bob's Ranch, Gap's Crown
"Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir La Brisa gives up lovely notions of violets, chocolate box and rose hip tea over a core of pomegranate, black cherries and menthol. Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals loads of perfumed black and red berry flavors, supported by plush tannins and lovely freshness, finishing earthy."
Vibrant ruby red in color, La Brisa Pinot Noir opens with hints of earth, crushed rose petals, and red fruits laced with a wild character. Strong flavors of crushed raspberry, cola, freshly turned soil, and tobacco linger on the palate. The texture is rich and leads into a warm finish with balanced oak and fresh minerality.
This blend is predominately from our Bob’s Ranch Estate, with Gap’s Crown and Calesa vineyards completing the blend which features both Dijon and heritage clones. The resulting combination of diverse vineyard sites and clonal variation creates a complex wine with abundant fruit, making it a delicious Sonoma Coast blend.
